Connor -- ADOPTED 9/14/02 !!
Connor is a sweetheart who just needed some consistent training and regular discipline so he knew what the boundaries were. He was given up to DDRI by his owner who got him at 3-4 months of age on a referral from another rescue agency. The owner had owned a deaf Dane before but was working two jobs and was unable to properly train Connor. There was also an issue of an elderly relative living in the house that was not able to deal with Connor. This was the primary reason the owner gave Connor to DDRI. He is a warm, loving dog who really wants to please. He is very smart and is learning his basic obedience signs as fast as we can teach them to him. We expect Connor to be ready for adoption some time in late July or early August. Connor's dream home would already have a trained adult Great Dane (or more), no small children, no elderly or infirm residents, and owners who are familiar with Danes and have time to spend with Connor. A retired couple or someone who isn't away at work all the time would be best. Connor is not a "problem" dog. He is coming along amazingly fast. In just under a week he has learned sit, down, stay, potty, and has pretty well learned come and his name sign. With just a little extra TLC at first, Connor will develop into a fabulous dog for the right people.

The great pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool out of himself too.   Samuel Butler
